Probably to avoid drawing attention to where the trial is taking place, to avoid attacks on the area, such as snipers trying to shoot the accused or the defense team, or bombings. The of the BTK killer wasn't well publicized either.

Sadly, famous athletes get more press anytime they do anything.

Why doesn't the media cover the thousands of children living in foster care every day? The thousands of children living in poverty? The thousands of children abused? That should get media coverage before a murder trial.

Millions of puppies and kittens are killed every year, and it doesn't make front page news.

Also, the pic of the person holding the baby is wrong. The baby should be kept at the level of the vagina until the cord is cut (the cord is angled down) and the cord should never have tension in it as this picture does.

Define "ignored."  I've heard about it on the news...and I watch ONLY left-leaning biased news.  :-) 

Seriously, though.  I'm not sure that I agree it's being completely ignored.  And my hunch is that it has to do with protection at the trial site.  This is fairly common in cases like this.

I have heard about Gosnell murder factory...he is the reason why abortions became legal..., because he is the kind you would find in back alleys, and prey upon the poor, weak.  He should be forever behind bars.  It is not as if the media has ignored this trial.  There are articles about this horriffic man and the horros of his "women's clinic.".   Why broadcast media hasn't picked up on his grizzly dark  grimm  "Meingler" like "doctoring" is quite curious.

Ummm...wasn't this thing front page news when it first came to light? I remember seeing article after article after article about this guy and his place. I saw the pictures. They were horrible.
